Today, it hit me that my dad didn't cry when I moved out, he did so only when I came back later to pick up my cat. FML

neither of my parents cried when I moved out...I didn't know they were supposed to?

Maybe it was delayed reaction. Maybe it didn't really sink in until you took the cat. Maybe you showing up made him realize he missed you more than he expected. Lots of ways this could happen without it meaning he loved the cat more than you.

yikes, that sucks.

I believe your father, like most men, truly thought you'd be coming back often if you kept the cat at the house. So "goodbye" wasn't forever. Once you took the animal though, he realized you won't be by to visit much at all, and now he will be lonely. It's not the love for the cat, is the love of his daughter. Not a FML, but you're an melodramatic idiot OP.

That's retarded.

Does suck, but you probably deserve it. Relationships aren't automatic. Bet you haven't been the best child a parent could have (this FML limit of comments between posts is annoying, it's the frigging net, I can read twenty of these FMLs in no time and would like to comment on them - perhaps a captcha based on frequency?)

I've always wanted to do this... SECOND! Oops... Dang it!

your dad will miss the pussy :'( meow!

I don't think they are supposed to. It's not like they are never going to see you again. In fact, I think most parents are happy to see their kids move on to adulthood, and moving out is one of the steps towards that.

OP, you can you be so heartless? Old man loves the cat :@ :@

It's just less awkward to stroke a cat's fur than yours.

Today, I realized that even if people have really good lives and dads that are still around to care about them, they will still bitch about petty shit because they really don't realize how good they have it. FML.
